Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues in universities and public research in France. The French colleague(s) must be identified in the proposal. The maximum award is $30,000.
Priority will be given to projects that:
- propose a balanced exchange between the MIT and French participants
- demonstrate complementarity between the MIT and French teams
- involve undergraduate and graduate students
The MIT-France Seed Fund is a part of MISTI Global Seed Funds. All general MISTI Global Seed Funds criteria, application and evaluation procedures apply.
